Three Hawks players get Rondo’d

Let's examine the Hawks who are burned by Rajon Rondo on this play.

Jeff Teague – Forced to respect Rajon's hot jump shooting, Teague races out to the perimeter. Rondo promptly blows past him. 

Jason Collins – Frozen by the behind-the-back ball fake. He's in a tough spot. If he challenges, Rondo dishes to KG for an open 17 footer. Likelihood of KG making that shot is 90%.

Joe Johnson – A truly disgusting defensive effort by Johnson. He never left his feet to challenge Rondo. At the very least, Johnson should have hammered Rondo and put him on the line.

    Even the camera guy at the end of the video got Rondo’d.

    Johnson didn’t get Rondo’d he got lazy. That was Johnson’s play to make (foul or not). Inexcusable. I know you’re down by 28 but show some freakin’ heart man, send a message for game 5. It must be hard to be a fan of the Hawks.

    Well said. That disco dancer Rondo never does anything right.

    Rondo stat line last night has become the norm in the playoffs, is anyone surprised by the numbers?
    i’ll let that sink in for everyone.

    I like Gorman’s chuckle after watching the replay.
